I have always been a huge fan of Momofuku Toronto (please tell me you have tried the crazy good cookies at Momofuku Milk Bar!). With 3 restaurants (Noodle Bar, Daishō and Shōtō), bar (Nikai), and dessert shop (Milk Bar), they really have become a Toronto staple. Having gotten my Momo-fix on more than one evening occasion, I couldn’t wait to get in there for a day time meal.
Momofuku Daisho now offers brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. Their brunch menu features their take on brunch classics as well as a variety of super yummy cocktails- happy days! Check out the menu here!
Take a peak at some of the amazing eats (and drinks) that I ate during my brunch at Momofuku Daishō!

Who knew I would love bao for brunch better than bao for dinner? You have to try these super flavourful pillows of heaven!

Of course I tried the granola- I’m a Dietitian after all! Trust me people, this was some super elevated yogurt and granola!

This was one of the most unique and tasty brunches I’ve ever had (I went on a long run afterwards because I ate so much) and it lived up to the Momofuku name!
